4:00am
taliban who have vowed to assassinate pervez musharraf. he has been in a self-imposed exile since resigning wants to lead his party's election in this may's election. musharraf himself admits that the homecoming is quite, to quote him, "risky" he says. secretary of state john kerry making one more stop on his first trip overseas. an announced visit to iraq. he landed in iraq a short time ago. nick payton walsh has been traveling with the secretary and joins us via phone. what else is john kerry pressing for? >> yes, christi. on top of the agenda here, it is going to be a direct approach from john kerry to prime minister maliki. intervene on flights from iraq to syria delivering fighters to
4:01am
assist the regime. the u.s. is convinced that almost 80 flights and they want to be clear that iraq should, if it wants to have a role in forming the future of syria with the syrian opposition, they should prevent the evidence, they say. they say that inspections done by iraqis aren't enough and those have turned up humanitarian aid but the u.s. is convinced that those flights are carrying weapon supplies. a real trip here for secretary of state. >> all right. nick payton walsh, thank you so much for the update, we appreciate it. thank you for kick starting your morning with us here. we have much more ahead for you on cnn "sunday morning" which starts right now. happy sunday to you, everybody. i'm christi paul. 7:00 on the east coast and 4:00
4:02am
out west. 4:00 out west and you're up, did you even go to bed? thank you for sharing your time with us here this morning. i wanted to begin with this weather that is just refusing to give in. old man winter, so to speak. officially the fourth day of spring, people. look out your window. a wicked winter storm is shoving your way across the country. want to bring in meteorologist karen mcginnis for the latest. we are seeing the whiteout conditions from missouri right now. is that what we're going to continue to see? does it still pack that much punch, karen? >> it will pack brief but instense snow with some blowing snow. but the storm system itself is kind of winding down, but i say that with some caution. this area of low pressure as it treks further towards the east, it is going to not produce as much snow as we saw across colorado. it moves across the ohio river valley on that northern and on the back edge of that. that's where we'll see the heaviest snowfall.
4:03am
it will be kicked around with 35, 40, possibly gusts to 50 miles per hour in some areas to places like cincinnati and st. louis and kansas city. for today, that's your weather. three to six, four to seven inches of snowfall. some of the common amounts. all right, you're probably wondering what happens after that. monday, washington, d.c., along that i-95 corridor and also for new york. this is also going to be a brief event as kind of a different storm system treks across the mid-atlantic coast. for washington, d.c., i think you might see just some small or slight accumulation. for new york city, one, two, three inches of snowfall expected there. look at this, kansas city, five to seven and st. louis six to ten. some visibility on those roadways will be fairly low. remember yesterday interstate 70 from denver, just a little bit to the east, all the way to kansas border, they shut it down. so many accidents on a number of
4:04am
other interstates. interstate 25 across colorado. then across the allegheny mountain you're looking at significant snowfall. you get some of that lift across the mountains and that's where the heaviest snow is going to be located. kansas city in the thick of things right now and gradually make its way towards the east. the line of fire sweeps from kansas city over towards st. louis and eventually towards indianapolis. if you are out trying to get things done, you have some problems. this is kind of a spring-time event as far as the thunderstorms go. we do have a number of watches. one a tornado watch and the other is is severe thunderstorm watch. this incompasses the tallahassee area and southwestern georgia. this is the area shaded in red. watch out for the potential for tornadic activity. atlanta and macon under that severe thunderstorm watch. meaning we could see some brief, heavy downpours and strong,
4:05am
gusty winds. the possibility of an isolated tornado. so, christi, a lot going on today. >> good heavens. one busy women today. karen mcginnis, we're glad you're here. colorado and i want you to look at this flames that engulfed a semi trailer that got caught in that whiteout north of denver. as many as 50 vehicles spun or crashed along i-25. the interstate along with 15 other highways across colorado were shut down yesterday. i want to show you pictures, too, of i-70 in eastern colorado. it has reopened after authorities yesterday closed a 150-mile stretch when, as karen said, those wind gusts got up to 50 miles. per hour. i-70 in western kansas is still closed, if you're traveling that route. as the storm pushes east into missouri and the ohio valley, you know flights could be a problem. flights in denver, we understand, though, are getting back on track.
4:06am
more than 200 had to be canceled at that point. let's take a look at what's happening, too, in the south. a little more information for you as that heavy rain flooded streets yesterday and some cars. this is in birmingham alabama, even a mobile police command center got caught in rising water. the volatile storms, as you heard karen say, expected to keep packing a punch on alert for large hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes. i want to stay in georgia for you now, because we have a new recording of an eyewitness and this frantic 911 call that sheds some new light for us on thursday's deadly shooting of a toddler. listen to this. >> baby's been shot. >> listen to me, ma'am. is the baby breathing? >> i don't know. the baby is in a stroller. i just came out the door. she's trying to get the baby out now. >> did you hear any shots in the area? >> listen, the baby is shot. the baby is on the ground. >> we have people en route to you.
4:07am
i still have to ask you these questions. did you hear any shots in the area? >> yes, i heard the shots. >> well, take a look at 17-year-old demarcus allen and a 14-year-old boy who police are not naming because of his age. they are charged with first degree murder now. nick valencia is in news brunswick and i know you sat down with the baby's mom, sherry west. this is not the first son she has lost to violence, right? >> it's not. she lost an 18-year-old son back in 2008 to a stabbing incident. he was trying to break up a fight. so, she's already suffered a similar loss before. but i spoke to her yesterday, christi, as you can imagine. she lost a lot of faith in humanity and very paranoid about living here in brunswick. when we showed up, she was packing up her belongings and saying she is moving back to new jersey, where she has family. we spoke about her son and what she would miss most about young
4:08am
antonio. >> i still think of my son walking over to me in the morning and putting his head on my lap and on my shoulder. and me feeding him meals. and the fact that he was just learning to eat. and that he'll never say his first word. >> the grieving mother. she's going to have a really hard time getting over this, she's telling us. >> so, i know she also had something to say to the two young men who have been charged in this case. what was that, nick? >> she didn't mince words, christi, she is very direct about how she felt. unforgiving and the sound speaks for itself. take a listen. >> that i hate you and i don't
4:09am
forgive you. and that you killed an innocent human life and that i hope you die for it. >> we know very little about elcons the 17-year-old and even less about the 14-year-old. he is being treated as a juvenile. we checked out his facebook page and part of a gang bloods. only 15,000 people. he said, christi, a bunch of wannabes. no problems. in this area, where the shooting happened, it's a nice neighborhood. quiet neighborhood. when we've been there, very calm and quiet. not abnormal for that to be like that in that area. >> nick, let me ask you. correct me if i'm wrong. i was reading that the 17-year-old has some sort of an alibi. his aunt says she was with him. how certain are police that they have the right people here?
4:10am
>> his aunt spoke to a local affiliate and said it's impossible that they have the right suspect because elkins was with her that morning. he told us in circumstances like this, always going to be family members that don't want to believe or accept that their loved oned can be capable of doing something like this. he says they're confident that they got the right two suspects. they were helped by the description of the mother as well as cross referencing attendance records in area schools to find out who was missing that day. they're sure they have the right two guys. >> thank you so much, nick, we appreciate all the information. also new for you this morning, military officials have identified the quantico marine base gunman and both victims there. 19-year-old sara castromata and jacob wooley from guntown, mississippi, were both shot and
4:11am
killed last thursday on the marine corps base in quantico, virginia. authority believe eusebio lopez shot both young marines before he killed himself. the shooting, of course, is still under investigation. and new york mayor michael bloomberg is behind this new round of ads aimed at gun control. the ads are from the group, mayors against illegal guns and they've bought $12 million worth of airtime for this ad. take a look at part of it here. >> my dad taught me to hunt and i'll teach my kids. i've owned a gun all my life and i'll fight for my right to keep it. background checks have nothing to do with taking guns away from anyone. closing loopholes will stop criminals and the dangerously mentally ill from buying guns. that protects my rights. >> now, this effort is the group's most expsive yet influence the debate over gun control. thursday more than 100 demonstrations and special events are planned in support of
4:12am
universal background checks and the ads start running in 13 states on tuesday. you'll probably see more of them. a nondescript porcelain bowl just sitting for years in someone's living room. turns out a chinese antique worth more than $2 million. look at that thing. looks like you can buy it at pottery barn. what treasures do you have laying around your house? we are talking to an expert. ♪ if loving you is wrong ♪ i don't wanna be right [ record scratch ] what?! it's not bad for you. it just tastes that way.

4:16am
it looks like you can buy it at pottery barn somewhere. we hear it aboabout it all the . a common book sold for 3 million. the story of the iraq war vet that bought an edition of a newspaper at a market. how do yo yo you know if you ha treasure in your home? president of heritage auction, greg, good to have you with us. another big find. a sergeant peppers album that was signed by the beatles. what do you know? >> i know it's the finest quality example of a beatle signature item ever to come up for auction. currently bid online at $110,000 and we expect it to go a lot higher. >> you do. what about coins? a nickel, i understand, that was found in a car crash. a nickel is expected to sell for
4:17am
$2 million. >> more than $2 million, really. unbelievable story. in 1913, they made five nickels with miss liberty's head on the top and right before they changed it and made the buffalo nickel. . of these five nickels that were made, four of them known to be in the hands of collectors for the last 100 years. but one of them disappeared in 1963 in a car crash and the family was told that the coin was counterfeit, not worth anything when they were settling the man's estate who died in 1963. fast forward 40 years later, they take it and have experts authenticate it as the missing theft coin and now expected to bring the family when heritage auction sells it next month in chicago for over $2.5 million and maybe even more. >> at least they finally got it right. i want to get a little -- >> they feel greatly vindicated that their uncle had bought the coin and he bought a genuine
4:18am
coin after being told in 1963 that it was a fake. >> that had to be hard to take. i want to get personal here and show you, this is hard, i'm sure, to assess. i have this that apparently it was made in 1862 for my great, great-grandmother's 12th birthday. i have no idea if it's worth anything. it's in perfect working order. i played it at my grandmother's all the time and is it worth getting appraised? >> melodeon is a rare item. it is the own lay way that people had musical entertainment and looking at the picture of your piece, one of the more ornate and beautifully detailed melodeons i've seen. it wouldn't be surprise me to see it sell for $5,000 or $10,000 or more. very nice find. >> thank you.
4:19am
>> the best part about it is it has been in your family and we know where it's been since it was made in 1862, so important. >> yeah, i'm not selling it. it's for sentimental reasons, i'm keeping it for the long haul. i wanted to ask that question. thank you for humoring me. i know that people, i'm sure i'm a lot like a lot of these people who sometimes have so much junk. how do we know what's worth sifting through? >> well, the best thing to do, if you think you have something that's valuable. don't sell it to the first company that offers you a few dollars for it. check with major national auction companies like heritage or anyone else and make sure that you have all your research done before you sell it. certainly people that had the bowl are glad that they did that. >> greg, thank you so much for the great information this morning. we appreciate it with heritage auction. >> thank you so much. >> sure, take good care.
